2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
At the start of the 2013 season, Tom Brady was without his top-five pass catchers from 2012 due to injury, free agency and criminal activity. The Patriots then lost prized free agent acquisition Danny Amendola to a groin tear during their opening week contest, further depleting the depth chart. Brady was forced to rely on a handful of rookie wide receivers and journeymen-type tight ends to pick up the slack. Unheralded veteran Julian Edelman then stepped up and caught 105 balls on the season. The former college quarterback was a reliable target for Tom Terrific, but lacked the playmaking ability to keep the offense moving at the levels it was used to achieving since 2007. Edelman managed a meager 10.1 yards per reception and only found the end zone six times. Given those poor metrics, it's hard to imagine that the team can't make better use of the 151 targets that went Edelman's way last season. With that said however, Brady lobbied hard for the Pats to bring the free agent Edelman back this offseason and the team did resign him after he flirted with Houston and San Francisco. In PPR leagues, Edelman could still be a reliable WR3 but with Amendola and Rob Gronkowski healthy and with Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins a little more seasoned, it's possible his receptions could be cut in half in 2014. Buyers beware.

Comment: Edelman's high production last season was out of necessity. His numbers will fall back into WR3 range if the Pats wide receiver corps stays healthy.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julian Edelman out with concussion
Didn't make the trip to New York
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 20, 4:00 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will not play tomorrow against the Jets due to a concussion, according to two sources. (Boston Herald)

FFToday's Take: With Edelman out of the lineup it's reasonable to assume Danny Amendola will see more snaps. RB Shane Vereen could also see increased usage in the passing game. Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell get a bump in value.


Injury Blount in Pittsburgh dealing with legal matters
Ankle injury keeps Shane Vereen limited
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 10, 3:48 pm

New England Patriots
FOXBOROUGH The Patriots were without two high-profile players at practice on Wednesday, but for very different reasons. Defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee) missed practice, as did running back LeGarrette Blount (not injury related). Blount, according to reports, was in Pittsburgh in court to appeal an August charge for possession of marijuana. As usual, the Patriots had a laundry list of limited participants in practice. Long-snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), left guard Dan Connolly (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh), offensive tackle Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), and linebacker Chris White (ankle) were all limited in practice (Boston.com)

FFToday's Take: Blount was given 50 hours of community service stemming from his marijuana possession charge early this year. Nonetheless, he remains the most fantasy worthy running back heading into Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins. Shane Vereen, who was limited in practice Wednesday, has only had eight touches over the past two weeks and will be a risky fantasy start if cleared to play.


Injury Patriots WR Julian Edelman limited
Thigh injury clouds status for Sunday
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 19, 7:00 pm

New England Patriots
FOXBOROUGH Wide receiver Julian Edelman is less than 100 percent following the New England Patriots' 42-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Edelman (thigh) landed awkwardly on top of a yardage marker in Sunday's game, and was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's walkthrough practice. (Boston.com)

FFToday's Take: It's too early to know whether Edelman will be able to play this week so fantasy owners should prepare for all scenarios while checking back as the week progresses.
